So my next thought was a fondant. I have never covered a cake in fondant so I am afraid to try it for someone else's cake. Any thoughts on using the all natural marshmallows sold at whole foods or home made marshmallows? Is rolled fondant terrible hard to use? I can do basic cake decorations with pastry bag and tips, stars, small flowers, etc... Just to give you can idea about my skill level (basic beginner, self taught)
Sorry for all the questions but I am guess I'll have more.
I would suggest either a whipped cream icing and an all butter icing for the decorations. Good luck in this heat!
Yes, the heat is the issue the birthday is in August at a pool.
What I'd suggest is using a thin coating of buttercream and then covering the cake with homemade marshmallow fondant. It's good, pretty and contains less fat than a thick coating of bc would.
I think it's pretty much impossible to have a 100% healthy cake! Sometimes we just have to splurge a little, especially on birthdays.
